Summer Camps – Book now for 2017


St John’s now offer two types of Summer Camp experience – the Residential Summer Camp for overseas students and a Day Activities Summer Camp for local children.

RESIDENTIAL Summer Camp 2017

St John’s Camps offer overseas and UK children a unique opportunity to learn and to have fun – in a stunning coastal location, in beautiful historic buildings yet with the most impressive up to date facilities.

For overseas children looking to improve their English or UK children who want to experience the fun of a UK boarding school environment, St John’s Camps offer a choice of full residential courses or day programmes.

All Camps take place at St John’s School Sidmouth, a co-educational independent school situated in the wonderful Devon countryside overlooking the sea in Sidmouth.

The school benefits from extensive grounds and playing fields, an outdoor swimming pool, indoor sports hall, adventure playground and tennis courts, all located in this safe, Edwardian seaside town.

All camp courses make the very most of these facilities, with the programme including indoor activities such as drama, art, music combined with the widest choice of outdoor sports and activities including cricket, swimming, tennis and soccer.

The children also take part in a packed and varied diary of weekend visits and activities which make the most of the local attractions we have on our doorstep including fossil hunting on the beautiful Jurassic Coast, visiting historic sites, walking the coastline, hiking on Dartmoor and Exmoor or simply experiencing our world-famous Devon Cream Teas.

For overseas children English language lessons (beginner, intermediate and advanced levels) form part of every day with the additional benefit of the complete immersion of your children in an English speaking environment.

Our dedicated on-site staff is there to help make a fun, safe and memorable summer camp experience for your children.
